MHRP at AIDS Vaccine 2013

September 27, 2013
Researchers from around the world will gather at the annual AIDS Vaccine conference October 7-10 in Barcelona. See the research MHRP and RV144 collaborators will present.

AIDS Vaccine, the annual scientific conference dedicated to AIDS vaccine research, will be held in Barcelona this October and will draw thousands of the best scientific minds in the field of HIV research. If you are attending, be sure to check out the MHRP presentations and RV144-related presentations by collaborating organizations. See the schedule below:
